    My #1 wish would be to see them try to somehow address the banding. Not sure if that is possible through firmware though.

    The rest of my shortlist:

    • One button press magnified view for manual focus
    • User selectable minimum shutter speed for auto ISO
    • Full auto ISO functionality with manual focus lenses

    Bracketing EV step

    The current limit of 2/3 stop on EV is unrealistic. I can see no reason that this could not be increased to 1.5 EV by firmware, which would allow a useful range of bracketing to be accomplished in 3 shots. The slow fps of the G1 makes the use of more shots impractical through subject movement.
